. to demystify a comedy mythologize, to move beyond the clichÉ about winners and losers and saints and sinners and the wisdom and encourage of our forefathers, especially those of the greatest generation. our job as historians. grounded in evidence. the life of joseph p. kennedy was, for me, a sort of anti-fun house mirror. which, if i looked at it long enough, would reflect back to me often a hazy and indistinct, distorted forms, images of the things and people and places which organized and arranged and told the story of 20th century america. i was a colleague of arthur's lessons are in the city of new york. i had used a treasure trove of material is that jean kennedy smith's daughter, who is writing letters from her father to her aunt and uncles, and in that treasure trove of material, i glimpsed a man who is different from everything i had heard. so i told jean kennedy smith at some point that her daughter should write a biography of her grandfather. and the man was absolutely fascinating. it's a good word to use when you don't know you'll be writing about it. it was fascinating in

young people? >> guest: i learned a lot. and learned that no matter where, is sort of clichÉ, but i matter where you're from, no matter what your background is, everyone has a burning desire to be better, do better, improve themselves. i want to wait for my trip because we went in without these preconceived notions that people in other generations are calling us apathetic and spoonfed and i walked to a feeling inspired our generation, you know, does want to fix this country, does want to fix this world. i don't know if it's going to happen overnight. i think our world is changing every day. the way we communicate, the way we effect change is going to be different than my father and grandmother grew up up in the 60s. we are not up there in the streets protesting. we communicate and spread information in a much different way. c-span: so where does you grew up? >> guest: i was born in d.c., grew up in connecticut, went to school in new hampshire. c-span: what this tapestry of your family? what do your parents do? >> guest: my mother is a journalist, a science writer. c-span: was her na
